Michael Tyler's Grand Ole Opry Debut

"My hands were numb! I don't know how they were working and playing."

That's what it's like to play the Grand Ole Opry for the very first time, according to Michael Tyler.

Tyler's country music star is rising, thanks in part to his first No. 1 as a songwriter with Dierks Bentley's "Somewhere on a Beach."

There's a lot of buzz surrounding his own song "They Can't See," too.

Watch him perform some of it during his Opry appearance below.
